2018 Draft Tiers -- PPR TEs (Updated)

By Matt Schauf 2:08pm EDT 8/29/18


Travis Kelce has finished 2 straight seasons atop the league in PPR scoring. Yet it's still Rob Gronkowski who leads all TEs in PPR points per game -- by 3.0 -- across Kelce's 4 years in the Kansas City lineup.

Still, Kelce gets his own tier behind Gronk's, followed by Philly's emergent TE from a year ago. Then we get to the rest of the position, with floor and upside options scattered throughout.

Rob Gronkowski

Julian Edelman's 4-game suspension adds volume appeal to Gronk early, while Brandin Cooks' departure should help throughout the year.

Travis Kelce

Can Kelce remain as efficient with a new QB? We're obviously not particularly worried, but the changes in K.C. help create space between Kelce and Gronk.

Zach Ertz

Lots of murmurs from Philly reporters suggest a big role right away for rookie TE Dallas Goedert. Combine that with questions about whether Carson Wentz's knee with be ready for Week 1, and we can't see boosting Ertz to Kelce's level.
